Geared to the Times: The Digital Dimensions

Bound to home during COVID-19 and still connecting with youth stretched and surprised us in a life and ministry-altering way we never imagined.

Big Lessons In Small Matters

When I first started my internship at SYFC, I remembered wondering how I would be able to interact meaningfully with youth during COVID-19.

What a year! COVID-19 descended upon us unexpectedly on 23rd January, transformed the way we interact with each other, the way we work and made face mask an essential part of our clothing whenever we go out. In the early days, a lot of uncertainties were abounding and rumours were WhatsApp-ing around, leading to panic-buying.…

In 1999, Albert Lee handed over the work to Christopher Tan and in 2005 Christopher Tan handed over to current National Director, Lim Chien Chong.
